You assumed I get the turkey bacon you saw. But I don't. I buy only uncured turkey bacon. Minimally processed, no nitrate, no artificial ingredients.

Ingredients:
turkey thighs, water, sea salt, raw sugar, celery powder, paprika, onion powder, spice.

1 slice (28g):

30 calories
1.5g fat, 0 sat fat
cholesterol 25mg
sodium 180mg
sugar 0
protein 6g

Now tell me which one is better. Mine or your turkey bacon?
It took me a while to find this turkey bacon. It tastes ****ing good. I eat 8 slices every day for lunch.

For eggs, I buy egg whites in container. I buy organic cage free dozen eggs. I use half from egg white container and 4 whole eggs. Don't have to throw away any yolks.

You should be afraid of sat fat. Latest studies show sat fat from red meats is one of major causes for reduced life expectancy and cardiovascular diseases. Your body does need sat fat, but from healthy sources. FDA recommends 30gm of sat fat a day. I get about 20gm a day from nuts and eggs.

You're forgetting about calorie quality; one 1 carb from whole wheat is not equal to 1 carb of white wheat. Same with proteins and fats.

I'd love to know the ingredients of yours and all the nutrition facts

This is from butterball's turkey bacon

Ingredients: (White Turkey, Mechanically Separated Turkey, Dark Turkey), Water, Sugar, Salt, contains 2% or less of Canola Oil, Sun Flower Oil, Natural Flavor, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Nitrite.

Looks like an awful lot of garbage.

1 slice of mine is
35 cals
3g fat
2g pro

The ingredients in mind are pork, water, sea salt, brown sugar

I'd be shocked if there is a person on the planet that would rather have a dog treat over this bacon. btw, why don't you eat all the yolks?
